The earliest known information related to CYBER SONGMAN dates back to the VY2 release in 2010. In an article, a pair of English VY vocals were announced for future development. At the time, the developers did not know if they would re-use past samples or make a new vocal entirely. CYBER DIVA was released in February 2015 and was later confirmed to be the female from the pair and is also known as "VY3". CYBER SONGMAN is likely to be the male of the pair or "VY4".
On October 31, CYBER SONGMAN was suddenly revealed and released as a download. He was introduced as a natural American English accented VOCALOID and debuted with two demo songs. He also received his own promotional video and a video that briefly discusses his development. He can be purchased on his own or as a starter pack with the VOCALOID4 editor or the VOCALOID4 editor for Cubase. In addition, he was offered in another set: a starter pack containing his vocal and CYBER DIVA along with either the VOCALOID4 editor or VOCALOID4 editor for Cubase.
According to the developer interview, after the success in making a clear English voicebank with CYBER DIVA, they wanted to increase the naturalness of the pronunciation.
